This tour is among the most complete and the most interesting because in a single day you will be able to discover not only Balinese most important places historically and spiritually but also the amazing sights along the way to get there.

We start the day visiting Goa Gajah or the Elephant Cave – a Hindu Buddhist hermitage dated from IX century and just unearthed in 1923 AD, a lovely place on the riverside. Then we proceed to the dramatic scenery of the terraced rice fields at Tegalalang on the way to the Valley of the Kings of Gunung Kawi where the amazing view to the Pakrisan River Valley can be appreciated. Afterwards we continue our trip to Bali’s very important holy spring temple of Tirtha Empul believed to be created by Indra, the god of thunder, lightning and rain himself. Our next stop is the traditional village of Panglipuran where house’s gates and lay out are all similar. The prosperous village is surrounded by a large bamboo forest used by the locals for building materials and for handicrafts. Then we proceed to Kintamani, where we have our lunch with the breathtaking view to the still active volcano and Lake Batur. Continuing the tour, we pass through the dense forest in the outer crater rim of Mount Batur until Besakih the “Mother” Temple, located on the south western slope of Mount Agung (3.142 meters) which is the island highest point and consequently considered as the dwelling place of the Gods. This is the biggest, the holiest and the most important Balinese shrine which consists of 87 smaller temples and has been built during more than 1.000 years. Our next stop is Bukit Jambul (the Crested Hill) to enjoy the magnificent view of rice terraces extending from the hill sides until the seaside with the lovely view to Nusa Penida Island before our arriving at the ancient Capital City of Klungkung or Semarapura, the seat of the most powerful Balinese kings (1686-1908 AD), to see the old buildings of Kertagosa (Court of Justice) and Bale Kambang (the Floating Pavilion) decorated with the best Classical Balinese paintings on their ceilings.
